I Can Hear Your Mother's Voice (1/2)

An old man was seated one day
by the fire in the cosy armchair,
His daughter was playing the organ,
and singing an old-fashioned air;
As he heard the sweet notes of the song,
his mind to fond memories strayed—
'Twas the favourite song of her mother,
and he tenderly said to the maid:—

I Can Hear Your Mother's Voice (2/2)

"When I hear you sweetly singing
the dear old songs I know,
Sweet mem'ries you are bringing
of days long ago.
The songs of your dear mother,
they make my heart rejoice;
When I hear you singing
I can hear your mother's voice."
